Carrier Transicold, a manufacturer of climate-control products for transportation, offers its eAutoFresh system for shipping produce between North and South America. The system features an innovative on-demand ventilation option designed for produce shipping container refrigeration units. The eAutoFresh system is an energyefficient alternative to the common practice of continuously ventilating refrigerated containers to address cargo respiration. For certain high-respiring perishable commodities, it can also extend shelf life and enable shipping over longer routes.
The eAutoFresh system replaces the manual vent on any EliteLINE, ThinLINE, PrimeLINE, or StreamLINE unit equipped with a MicroLink ML2i or ML3 controller. In use, the eAutoFresh system's carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor monitors container atmosphere and automatically opens the vent when CO2 levels rise above a preset point.
Ventilating only on demand means the refrigeration system works less, thereby saving energy while protecting product quality. The eAutoFresh system also adds flexibility in equipment utilization by allowing the hardware to be easily transferred between container units that have the appropriate controller software drivers installed.
